Djawida Nadjongorle.
(d. 2008).

Acquired personally in 1989 at Framed Gallery, Darwin, NT, Australia
69" x 22

Djawida was born
ca 1943 in Dialbangurr,
his father's country.
His family moved to
Oenpelli where his mother and father worked. Djawida went to school in Oenpelli with occasional visits to their country. That's where Djawida became interested in painting, first painting on rock, in the manner of his ancesters, including
hand and foot stencils.

Djawida learned to mix
ochres and paint, evolving to bark painting. He paints stories from his father's country, and
his mother's country (Kudjekbinj) and his grandmother's country near Manmoyi. Before passing in 2008, Djawida was a highly respected painter in his genre and is represented in many world class collections.
